aTOMic DJ @ New Place Hotel


Welcome to the latest atomic DJ blog on another wet, cold and miserable winters day, although I have noted that the nights are getting slightly lighter, must mean that it will soon be time to get the bbq out and book your summer weddings entertainment.

Now recently I have been looking back at my gigs in december including my trip to Wembley and performing up  very high at the Gherkin. Now these gigs are amazing but what I do each and every week and something that I love are of-course weddings and I was privilege to head to New place Hotel this december for the Wedding of Rod & Carrie Sessions.

Like all my wedding packages I offered a meeting and playlist and we met a month before the big day. In the meeting we discussed music and apart form a few tracks including the first dance the couple wanted me use my experience and play a set that would get people on the dancefloor. Its always nice to have a playlist to get a feel of what the couple like but its equally as nice for the couple to trust you to get the party going.

Rod & Carrie wanted me to do an early set-up and also set up up-lighters. The room at New Place is nice but the up-lighters certainly improve it and can certainly style it to the way you want it.

Rod and Carrie’s first dance was Eva Cassidy time after time, a lovely song that fitted perfectly, it fitted so well I choose it as the last dance as well. The night was a great success with a mix of ages accompanied by a mixture of music and genres that got everyone on the dancefloor . A fitting way to finish off a perfect day for Rod & Carrie.

The couple sent me the following testimonial on return from honeymoon:

Hi Tom,

I hope you are well, and looking forward to the festive fun. It must be a busy time of year for you.

We are just back from mini-moon and I wanted to take time out to thank you for a fabulous evening at New Place. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and everyone of the guests we have spoken to since have said what a great day it was. This wouldn’t have been possible without you, and really getting the party going in the evening.

Thanks again for a great, great night.
